Less glam side

The less glam side of being a (self employed) maker is that it can be a real juggling act. As #marchmeetthemaker-initiator Joanne Hawker puts it:


“We're not just makers, we're photographers, web 'experts', marketers, book keepers, copy writers, designers, thinkers, order packers, packaging buyers, tea makers and mid night oil burners [and] we're also trying to remember to have a life outside of the business too!” - @joannehawker


In fact, I’m struggling a lot with all this juggling today... 😓 But the upside is: I’m getting a lot of support from my friends and family. 😊 💞 What or who helps you deal with the less glam side(s)?
